    From what I've read the concensus seems to be that buying a cheap (or second hand) MiniDV camcorder specifically for this purpose is the way to go. The only problem is there doesn't appear to be such a thing as cheap MiniDV cam with firewire IN (so you can record back to tape) in the EU as these attract a greater tax.
    I went the cheap AND second hand route, but ended up with a fifteen quid tape eater - so maybe don't go too cheap.

    Best bet is to purchase a second 'less expensive' (I don't want to use the word cheap) mini dv camcorder to playback your tapes. You should be able to find one on Amazon or ebay.
